How Do I Renew My Annual Referee Registration?

Important Notes
Each year, every Referee in Alberta must:

  • Renew their annual registration before April 1, otherwise a late fee will apply
    • This registration is valid for one outdoor season and the following indoor season
      (April 1 – March 31 of the following year)

Note: If taking a Mini or Entry Level Course, the first year of Referee Registration is included

 

Registration for the upcoming year will open in the first week of February

  • Go to www.refcentre.com and log in to your Ref Centre account.
  • Click where indicated to complete your registration form and submit your registration fees.

Before being placed on the eligible list for outdoor, you will need to attend a refresher course –
Courses will become available from February 1st onwards

  • Complete the online questionnaire (found under the ‘Registration’ tab).
  • Click on ‘Refresher Courses’ (also found under the ‘Registration’ tab) to see the list of available courses in the province and to register for one. You can also see a list of currently confirmed courses before renewing – Upcoming Courses.

You must complete these steps to be added to the list of eligible referees for the current year.

Please note that additional refresher courses will be added during the course of the season as they are requested by hosting districts and instructors are confirmed, so check back if there is nothing currently that works for you.
